    Those 350's are pretty solid engines and should last you quite awhile. In particular if it's been well maintained and taken care of. It's the trans that normally can't keep up.

    My brother had a 1992 1/2 ton 4x4 suburban (350) with 280,XXX miles when for no reason (it ran great) he replaced the motor. Granted, the trans was replaced a couple of times. But it was a great rig, now he has a 06 to start the mileage quest all over again.
